Nootropics

Jump to: navigation, search

This is my old nootropics research and shopping list, it is no longer maintained. You can read more about Nootropics on Wikipedia, but basically they are "smart drugs". This programme isn't strictly nootropics, it has an expansive scope including mood and general well-being.
